  4. Slide the DPCC into the slot until it stops.

    This leaves the DPCC protruding slightly from the back of the server. Do not attempt push the DPCC inward beyond this point.

  5. Rotate the lever on the DPCC upward until it locks into place.

    This action draws the DPCC inward engaging the connectors in the DPCC with the connectors on the server midplane.
